Cute, adult folk tale of a gnome and a rabbit. The trials and tribulations of living with failure. A gnome is the caretaker of the garden. The Gnome Council must not learn of his friendship with the rabbit. On top of that, the gnome is not having much luck with the garden, and must do something before the council comes after him. – Amazon Review
Events cannot unhappen.
From the moment Wil was born a gnome, his destiny was to till the soil and cultivate the strangely sentient plants.
Unfortunately, he is inept as a gardener and unable to perform gnomish magic. Roddy struggles with survivor’s guilt and overeats to avoid the haunting memories of his murdered kin.
Their unhappy lives and interpersonal conflict transform these unlikely characters into an uneasy companionship arising from necessity and need.
This meditative journey contains gorgeous sensory prose that contrasts against the backdrop of the harsh realities of farm life.
